Projects

Knowledge VQA

Visual question answering (VQA) with knowledge is a task that requires knowledge to answer questions on images/video. This additional requirement of knowledge poses an interesting challenge on top of the classic VQA tasks.

Australian History in Newspaper and AI

In collaboration with Prof. Fujikawa at Graduate School of Letters, Osaka University, we are working on exploring Australian history through public meetings, of which call for participation appears in newspapers from back then.

MLPhys: Foundation of Machine Learning Physics

Throughout its long history, physics has provided the most precise testing ground in the natural sciences, solving problems in various natural hierarchies in collaboration with the mathematical sciences. On the other hand, the field of machine learning is a major research field, a mathematical system that forms the foundation of artificial intelligence and has seen explosive progress in recent years due to advances in computational science. We are launching the transformative research area Machine Learning Physics to integrate these two major fields.

Society 5.0 Projects

Institute for Datability Science, Osaka University is now working on Society 5.0 using information science and technology. In the world of Society 5.0, innovations in IoT, Big Data, robotics, and AI will be part of everyday life, helping people lead active and high-quality lives, creating a super-smart society.

Esthetic Dentistry and Optical Analysis

By analyzing the optical properties of various dental restoration materials and dental tissues via optical simulation, the behavior of light in natural teeth and dental restorations is visualized and analyzed for esthetic tooth restorations.

Brain Pharmaceutics

Coming soon

AI Hospital

Osaka University Medical Hospital has launched Artificical Intelligence Center for Medical Research and Application (AIM), which supports physicians, nurses, and all the medical staff collaborating with medical information specialists and data scientists to boost the medical application of AI in daily practices of the hospital.

Law and AI

This work investigates legal evaluation criteria on the green laws' participation principle, analyzes Japanese participation system’s pros and cons in a comparative perspective, and propose some recommendations to establish the environmental democracy.
